On August 18, the City Commission authorized City Administration to move forward with the design and construction of dining platforms for seven food establishments in Downtown Manhattan: MHK Brewing Co., Tap House, Bourbon & Baker, El Patron, V, The Chef, and Finn’s Pub. The platforms will be constructed on City parking stalls along Poyntz Avenue and 4th Street.

In an effort to aid businesses impacted by COVID-19 restrictions, this project will provide food establishments an additional seating area while allowing for social distancing requirements. The City Commission awarded a maximum budget of $250,000 for design and construction. The platforms will be constructed of decking material and include a combination of planters, benches, fencing, and protective barriers. All platforms will meet ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards.

Architect One has begun final design work and once finalized, BHS Construction, Inc. will be begin construction. The platforms are anticipated to be in use by late September or early October.
